White Chocolate Cranberry Loaf (Light)

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Redsie

I found this recipe on the message board of Weight Watchers when I had just started WW a couple of years ago (I think it was posted by CrissyBear). I bake often but rarely do I use cake mixes - I made an exception for this recipe and boy was I glad I did! I have baked these often - for hostess gifts or Christmas gift baskets. Everybody loves the taste of white chocolate and cranberries! Can't wait to bake them again!

Very easy recipe to follow. I made this for my 2009 Holiday gift bags. I omitted the orange rind, subbed dried cranberries and lowered the temp to 325. I made them in small 6" paper gift pans, cooking 18 minutes then rotating the pans and cooking another 18 minutes. They turned out delicious and will now be a regular in our bags. Thanks for posting.
